This week, we have been thinking a lot about worship. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that our first worship service is only a few days away!!!
But also because we have been thinking and praying about this day for at least a year, probably longer, and now it’s here! And as we have been planning, learning, talking, and ideating about what it will look like for Uncommon [good] to do “worship” regularly, we have come to some conclusions…
Worship is Weird
Lemme ‘splain… For some, the typical idea of corporate worship is strange. Maybe even intimidating. People coming together to sing some songs that everyone seems to know, raising hands, standing up and sitting down all together, and at the right times… I mean, to an outsider, that’s weird. *Pause* – I wanna be clear in saying that there’s nothing wrong with that way of worship. I personally do those things when I worship. And we welcome it! But we also want to make our uncommon [worship] night a place with no expectations for those who might not be familiar with the typical patterns of worship. Because…
Worship is For Everyone
We mean that in the sense that, all are welcome to worship. But also, all are created to worship. That’s right. We were made to give glory to God. Not just with singing and raising hands. But with everything we are. And God invites all His creation (even rocks) to worship Him. Regardless of where you are in your faith, you are welcome to worship. You are created to worship. But what we want to help you understand is that worship is so much more than singing songs together…
Worship is a Lifestyle
Many of us are conditioned to think worship is some event that we attend once a week. But, a weekly gathering to sing and hear someone talk was never meant to be the end-all-be-all worship experience. Each and every day we are given the opportunity to worship the One whose image we were created in. Whether through our work, as a parent, as a student, as a friend, as a human trying to muddle through the rhythms of this life… No matter where we are, or what we are doing, it can be an act of worship to God. How, you ask? Well, we’ve gotta save something to talk about at the worship night. 😉
Speaking of… are you coming?!
